'The Killing’s' detectives hit a roadblock

This was a tense episode, no? Judging by the friction between Detective Linden and just about everybody this week, the alternate title for the episode could very well have been “Linden and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”

The episode resumed during the FBI raid of the meat locker, and we learned that the mosque Bennet attended was under investigation for possible ties to terrorism.

The storage facility was curiously set up to accommodate young girls, and Linden spotted a girl’s t-shirt that piqued her interest. In true Feds v. Local Police fashion, the FBI took over and was reluctant to share much about the investigation with the detectives, including evidence taken from the scene. Linden later managed to snap a picture of the shirt to show to Mitch, who confirmed that it belonged to Rosie.

Rihanna and Chris Brown follow each other on Twitter

Former flames Rihanna and Chris Brown had fans all a-Twitter when the two began following each other on the social networking site over the weekend.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, devotees of the stars noticed on Saturday that Brown—who assaulted Rihanna on the night of the 2009 Grammys and is currently forbidden from annoying, harassing or stalking his ex-girlfriend—had begun tracking the songbird's tweets, and shortly afterward, she began following his.

"I never thought you would go back to him! You better not, it's your life but you do have ppl that look up to you. e.g young girls," user iStan4Rihanna wrote to Rihanna, to which the singer replied, "It's f-- Twitter, not the [altar]! Calm down."

After 10 years, 'Smallville' didn't disappoint

After 10 years of "Smallville," we finally got to see the suit on Clark Kent and it did not disappoint.

Friday night was the two-hour series finale of the CW’s "Smallville,” a show that has pushed the boundaries of the Superman story to its limits. (Such as the creation of new characters that hadn’t shown up in the comics before [Chloe Sullivan] and taking other characters and giving them a bigger role than they ever had in the story as we knew it [Lana Lang].)

Although the show’s creators boldly said “no flying and no tights,” we saw those rules broken in the finale in a way that should make fans of both the show and Superman’s original tale satisfied with Clark Kent becoming the Man of Steel.

NBC bets on music for next season

NBC, which has struggled in recent years to find consistent hits in primetime, is placing its bets on the musical genre for the 2011-12 season.

The network released a primetime schedule Sunday that's heavy on music-based series, both scripted and unscripted.

"The Sing-Off," the a capella competition which had success in limited runs the past two Decembers, will air weekly on Monday nights this fall.  The network's hit show "The Voice" will take over the "Sing-Off" slot during the midseason.

Jon Cryer 'jazzed' to work with Kutcher on 'Men'

Two months after the cancellation of "Two and a Half Men," Jon Cryer is ready to get back to work and is looking forward to acting alongside new cast member Ashton Kutcher.

As for his fired former co-star Charlie Sheen, who once referred to Cryer as a "troll," the actor insists there are no hard feelings.

"I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons. I'm extremely proud of the work we've done together, and I will miss him. But I'm also looking forward to this new beginning," Cryer said in a statement to People.
